Deli Dakota

Mount Gravatt locals, are you keen for a sandwich soiree? How about a panini party or a banh mi bash? If the answer is yes, then you need to check out Deli Dakota. This charming specialty coffee and sandwich joint in Mount Gravatt East is a modern interpretation of the classic deli – think glossy white tiles with terracotta grout, pendant lights and blonde furniture across both inside and undercover outdoor spaces. The offering specialises in hand-held morsels – the kind that can be eaten on the move or enjoyed as a dine-in meal. A range of flat sandwiches and melts sit in street-facing cabinet. Highlights from this category include the Ham from the Heavens (smoked free-range ham, cheddar, Swiss and parmesan bechamel on sourdough), The Good Vegan (roast pumpkin and capsicum, beetroot relish, hummus, za’atar and vegan mozzarella on ciabatta) and the Forest Mushrooms (garlic and thyme Swiss brown and porcini mushrooms, parmesan béchamel and Swiss cheese with white truffle oil on sourdough). From 9:00 am, the kitchen adds a four-strong selection of more elaborate sangas, including the Dakota Fried Chicken (spiced buttermilk fried chicken, lettuce, kimchi mayo, kewpie and coriander on a milk bun), the Moreton Bay Po’ Boy (spiced and fried Moreton Bay bug tail, tomatoes, lettuce, mango, sriracha mayo and coriander on a milk baguette) and Deli Dakota’s take on a banh mi (free-range roasted Kingaroy pork belly, pate, pickled veg, kewpie and coriander on a milk baguette). The cafe’s specialty coffee program features beans from Melbourne’s Rosso Roasting Co, with espresso brews joined by rotating single-origin filters. A range of shakes are also available, with basic shakes and more decadent options on offer alongside cold-pressed juices.
